Future of Local Identity Safe?
As a long-time user of NIS I would appreciate a clear statement of direction from Norton with regards to the continuation of local ID safe in the future (and I mean only one copy on a persons pc and not the cloud). If it is the intent that new NIS versions, installation on a new computer or a windows 8 pc will trigger the ultimate loss of the local safe and forced usage of the cloud it is important that myself and other users be fully made aware of this. If nortons strategic direction is for local safe to be terminated, then I will begin the research to replace my password system to maintain local storage and control.
I consider myself an informed user and in no way would I entrust my financial passwords to any cloud storage system under any circumstance in our current computing environment. Corporate assurances are of little comfort when it comes to safeguarding the keys to my data. Today's perfect storm of data breaches, NSA snooping, delayed pw retrieval from some far away system, etc. gives me much cause for concern.
thank you in advance for any sense of direction on this issue.
p.s. my local vault did convert and was maintained as part of the v21 upgraded installation process.
